    First, let me say THANK YOU for your efforts creating the cam phaser thread. I have been reading the thread, now on page 25 and saw your post regarding selling the kits on Ebay, are you still doing that? If so, whats your seller name there? I saw lots of kits and wanted to be sure I get yours and hopefully you are making some money back on them.

    For background, I have an '04 screw with the 5.4 with 141k. I had 'Throttle position code', replaced the throttle body and things were great again. Soon after I noticed the tick, loud, and getting louder. Now its always there, changes frequency with RPM, and it seems low on power below 4k RPM, above has normal power, no fault codes and no check engine light. Any thoughts? My plan is to replace the VCT solenoids and see if it changes, if not then I'll do the fully timing swap out, rockers, valve lash adjusters, oil pump, and pickup tube. Am I on the right track? Thanks again for sharing your knowledge! Cheers, Kevin

    to s_vares. I have a 2004 FX4 crew cab with 170000 kms I have had the ticking noise since I bought it used. Love the truck it was driving great but on my way to work it started to stutter and then stall but would start right back up with good oil pressure on the guage but when I would try and drive it the stuttering would start and stall and engine light was on. I towed it to the garage and they said the engine had a lot of sludge and the engines codes were saying bad phasers. The truck still starts fine. Can this truck be saved or not. Just curious

    Hello. I was reading your article on the cam phaser replacement. Did you also have a rough idle? Mine is doing a weird thing where it goes out of time. It appears that the culprits are the same ones you changed. Trying to decide on either replacing these or dumping the truck. Thanks. Dave

    Hello Sir, I have read your article about the whole timing job on a 5.4 with cam phasers.
    I have one question, how to set the crankshaft before putting on the timing chains, on the 12 o clock position?

    Please let me know, you can send your reply to

    Regards, Ad.

    Hi , hows it going???
    I am about to do my cam phasers and and tensioners chains and guides, but one thing I notice is you don't mention any special tools other than the 303-1046. Did you not require the use of camshaft holding tools or spring compressor tool?

    Any help will be appreciated thanks

    I looked on ebay for your timing set and phaser kit but could not find it. Do you still have them?
